About Kimberly Wells James

We are a beach family, our family spends a couple of weeks at the beach every summer together. We have been doing these big family trips since the 1970's. We enjoy taking turns cooking the family meals and playing board games in the evenings.

Kimberly Wells James purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kimberly Wells James chose Fort Walton Beach

We use our condo for family trips as often as we can, and we enjoy renting it to others so the beach can be enjoyed by all new friends and family. We know you will love Okaloosa Island and Fort Walton Beach/Destin as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Of course the white sand and aqua water originally brought us to the Destin/Fort Walton area, but the friendly and family oriented atmosphere has kept us coming back year after year.

Very nice apartment, very clean.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived Jan 1. Stayed until Jan 24. The room was ready to go. All tile floors. Plenty of towels in

Both bathrooms, toiletries, dishes, spoons, knives, coffee pot, toaster etc.

The rooms were clean, three TVs, furnisher was in good condition. The location is good close to the stairs, and trash shoot and a short walk to the elevator, pool and ocean.

The overall building is clean and the mgmt staff are friendly. The pool is very large

and clean and the pool area has plenty of chairs. The exercise room is small.

The beach has white sand and very clean.

There are several restaurants in walking distance including the Waffle House, fish restaurant, karaoke bar and an excellent breakfast restaurant Asiago Skillet across the street, try it.

The weather was bad, lots of rain, storm watches and temperature went down to 28 degrees.

Water in the parking area when the rain was heavy but drained out fast. But if rain is forecasted park in the first parking spaces near the building or in the last parking area. The middle two parking area retains the water.

Not many people on the beach. The entire area was almost empty.

Over the bridge you have several restaurants in the publix shopping plaza including another Waffle House.

There's plenty of restaurants and shopping in Destin which is about 10 miles away. They have a super Walmart and Target. The Destin Commons is a great shopping are. Panera,

Starbucks are in the commons shopping center as is the restaurant La Famiglia which is a great place to eat. If you like Breakfast go to another broken egg or the donut hole both in Destin.

One very particular thing is about the TVs. There are three one in each bedroom and one in the living room. They all work but the TV in the smaller bedroom has a problem. All the stations work but three of the channels have no volume only the picture. The three channels without any volume are Fox News, Fox Business and the Fox local news(which carries the football playoffs). Yet these three channels have volume on the other TVs. I guess this TV is a democrat.

Overall we were happy with the apartment and recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gary for you review, I'm very glad you found the condo nice and I wish you had been able to enjoy better weather. I'm not sure why the guest bedroom tv decided to be political- I will have that fixed...thanks for letting me know. I also really appreciate your review of the local restaurants, I love Asiago and the Donut Hole too. Hope you come back soon

Wonderful Fall Break

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée, 6 year old son, mom and I came down during Fall Break for some much needed R&R and to do some wedding planning. We are getting married on the beach in April 2017. We managed to get in some wedding planning with all the beach, pool and eating we did. The beach was amazing and had a lot of fun playing in the surf (boogie boards are a must), the pool was nice and clean and there are food choices for everyone. We really liked AJ's, it was right across the street and there is live music, good food and drinks. They even played Rocky Top for us during a UT game. 😀

The best place to get your beach souvenirs is Surf Style, the best place for some family fun is Wild Willy's Adventure and for more food and shopping choices check out Destin (Harborwalk). We had a great time at Harry T's. We got a sat near the bay and watched the sunset and the boats come and go. Publix is a short drive to get all the essentials for the perfect stay.

If you have kids...once it's dark you need to grab a flashlight and a bucket and go looking for ghost crabs. We had so much fun chasing, collecting, looking at them and then releasing them back into the sand.

Thank you for sharing your adorable condo with us. We are taking home some sand, sun and memories with us. We are coming back in April and then hopefully again next October.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was excellent! Very clean and very comfortable. It is in a great area with all conviences nearby, close enough to walk to, down the beach. Only steps from the beach, get out of elevator, walk by the pool and you're on the beach. We'll be staying there on a regular basis. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.
